About @Home Childcare

Raising the standards of home-based childcare

Shaping the future of early years childcare

@Home Childcare is an Ofsted-registered Childminder Agency (CMA) dedicated to improving the quality and professionalism of home-based childcare providers.

We’re on a mission to make high-quality childcare accessible to more families by equipping childminder early educators with the skills and expertise they need to help the children they work with reach their full potential.

We believe the best way to achieve this is by raising the bar with quality-assured training and support that helps childcare practitioners achieve the highest standards.

A great early years’ education experience can be life changing.

Our goal is to empower people who share our passion to fulfil their dream of setting up and running a high-quality childcare service and provide families with stimulating, nurturing childcare that helps children thrive.

Our story

Our founder and CEO, Yvette Oliver-Mighten, established @Home Childcare in 2005.

A former teacher, Yvette formed the company as a solution for parents needing high quality, flexible, responsive childcare to fit in with their working hours.

Over the years, our service provision has widened to provide training and support to help develop the next generation of childminder early educators and raise standards across the industry. 

In December 2015, we registered with Ofsted as a CMA to deliver quality assured training and development to like-minded people with a shared passion for helping children thrive.

We help them become inspirational childminder early educators and support them through every stage of setting up and running their home-based childcare businesses.

It means local families get access to high-quality childcare, and their children benefit from exceptional, enriching early years education experiences.

Our team

Every member of our team is equally important to the success of @Home Childcare. We all share a passion for raising standards across the industry and helping children thrive.

Yvette Oliver-Mighten, our CEO, is a former teacher with 30 years’ experience working in the education and children’s services sectors. And our Support and Monitoring (SAM) Mentors are all qualified and experienced childcare professionals who bring their own unique experiences and talents to enable us to provide high standards of service.

Our sister company

Orange Moon Training, our sister company, is a government-approved provider of high-quality training to childcare and education practitioners.

It provides specialist training to help raise standards across the sector, improve skills, ensure best practice and give the individuals we work with the best platform to develop their careers.

Many of the childminder early educators we support undertake a nationally recognised qualification with us. Much of our training is fully funded, including apprenticeships and pre-registration training for educators, which means we can provide a cost-effective way for you to develop your skills and start your career in early years childcare.
